Need something to motivate your students to learn their letter/sounds, phonics, word families, and word work? How about a chant that explains why they need to do the activity. Children learn best when they understand the why behind it all. And of course it is fun to have a contest too. How about boys against the girls? Readers' Theater in parts? Kathy Griffin creates books to go with the multimedia file and song We've Got Dendrites/Word Work Chant. This set includes a 8 1/2 X 11 book for independent reading, guided reading, or listening center book and a song sheet to use in a song folder to help increase fluency of common sight words. Send the song sheet home in your students' reading folder for a home-school connection.
"IF THEY CAN SING IT, THEY CAN BE SUPPORTED IN READING IT." Kathy Griffin
Look for the multimedia file for the Smart Board and the mp3 song on Kathy Griffin's TPT store.
